Excellent doctor! Absolutely amazing in every aspect and just what you would want and expect when picking a surgeon for total hip replacement. 6 wks pre op and everything is great and I'm back to work all ready. Dr Akhtar is just a all around good doctor from first visit till last we have just loved the whole experience. I really liked when he stuck his head in on first visit to tell us he's running a few minutes behind and apologized and also calling night before surgery to see if I had ????

He did an outstanding job on my knee replacement. I am pain free and movement is normal. He is kind, gentle and listens to what you have to say. He is concerned about his patiences. I have recommended him highly.

I had a total hip arthroplasty (posterior technique) and cannot say enough good things about Dr. Akhtar, from his wonderful bedside manner, timeliness of meeting his schedule, skillful surgical technique and his post operative bedside manner--all were perfect in my view. My recovery is weeks ahead of schedule. I was up and walking well within three days and not even using a cane or walker at all within a week. I had no significant pain after the first week and was off pain meds after 10 days.

Dr. Akhtar replaced both of my hips a few years ago. Even with a complication with #2 that could not have been foreseen I was very happy with the entire experience. He is a knowledgeable and caring physician.
